MAKING ME IMPORTANT

I,MELISSA commit to the following, knowing that making myself important not only helps me succeed in my weight loss/health/fitness goals, but helps me help others better. I have commited to doing the following:

FITNESS: 50 minutes each day, run 3 days

NUTRITION: stay under 1400 calories & track EVERYTHING I put in my mouth

WATER: 80 oz a daliy

REFLECTION: reading bible and praying daliy

SLEEP: 7 hours nightly

I CAN DO THIS, I WILL DO THIS...IT IS ALREADY DONE!!!

If you’re walking down a set of stairs and you slip on a stair, you get up and continue your walk down. You would never get up and then throw yourself down the rest of the stairs. If you've "fallen" lately, now's the time to get up, forgive yourself, and move on!!!!


'Procrastination is a type of behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite procrastination as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision." I am a perfect example of Procrastination. I have read and read and read about with it take to lose weight and get fit. It is NOW time for me to get up and move. Of all the things I have read the one thing I know is you must MOVE and EAT with a purpose.

Ask yourself these 3 questions:
1) Why are you overweight?
2) Why do you want to lose weight?
3) Why have you been unable to maintain weightloss in the past?

DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!!! DONE DONE DONE

"Discipline is remembering what you want"

I am worth it. There is only one of me and God will not give me a replacement or a do over. I will lose the weight and keep it off!!!

=====Biblical Quotes======
"whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. " Col. 3:17

Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive... James 1:12

=====Motivational Quotes=====

"... If you can't run then walk. If you can't walk then crawl. But whatever you do, keep moving." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

A man who wants something will find a way; a man who doesn’t will find an excuse- Stephan Dolley, Jr

Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there- Bo Jackson

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. - Henry Ford

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing -that's why we recommend it daily. -Zig Ziglar

The only things that stands between a person and what they want in life, is the WILL TO TRY and the FAITH TO BELIEVE it is possible- Author unknown

Even when I'm a mess I still put on a vest with an S on my chest, oh yes I'm a SUPERWOMAN- Alicia Keys

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become. -Buddha

Put yourself in a state of mind where you say to yourself, "Here is an opportunity for me to celebrate like never before, my own power, my own ability to get myself to do whatever is necessary. -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Feeling un-motivated is what happens when you’re not really making conscious choices at all–you’re just responding mindlessly to various triggers in your environment, or operating on “autopilot” based on old habits and conditioned behavior." -Coach Dean Anderson-SparkPeole.com
